3 Simple Steps to Reduce the Spread of Germs in Occupational Therapy Clinics

1. Sanitise

Bactol® CLEAR and Bactol® BLUE both contain 70% alcohol and kill 99.9% of germs. The premium formulations contain natural emollients to leave skin feeling soft and refreshed. Bactol® BLUE is enriched with luxurious macadamia oil, & Bactol® Clear is enriched with emollient.

2. Spray

Viraclean is a hospital grade disinfectant used to clean surfaces such as benchtops, larger equipment and non-critical medical devices. Viraclean is used throughout hospitals and healthcare to kill a broad range of viruses, bacteria and fungi.

3. Wipe

V-Wipes is an Instrument grade (low level) disinfectant wipe so they are perfect for cleaning and disinfecting high touch point surfaces such as door handles, light switches, desk chairbacks, and non-critical medical devices. They kill a broad range of viruses and bacteria.

It is incredible how fast pathogens spread. On average, a person has contact with over 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, exposing them to 840,000 germs2

This puts Occupational Therapy clinics at risk because they are very hands on environments, where staff and patients regularly get exposed to a range of pathogenic microorganisms. When this happens, viral and bacterial infections can then be passed on to patients, colleagues, and ultimately family members.

The simple step of cleaning hands does save lives. Proper hand hygiene is one of the three critical ways to prevent the spread of infections, alongside infection prevention education and effective surface cleaning and disinfection.

According to the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare, there are five moments when healthcare workers should clean their hands:3

Like other healthcare environments, Allied health clinics experience high levels of risk when it comes to the spreading of infectious agents.
